Book Summary of The Topsy-turvies

The Topsy-Turvies sleep in the kitchen, get up at midnight and have breakfast in the bedroom. They wear their coats indoors and their pyjamas when they go out. They are most surprised when they visit Mrs Plum next door and find she doesn't, so they decide to make her house lovely for her by turning everything upside down - and when a burglar climbs through the window, they do their best to make him feel at home. First published in 1995, this story is as witty and original as one would expect from the author of Horrid Henry. It is now reissued with brand-new illustrations by Emily Bolam, whose bright and brilliant pictures of the Topsy-Turvies are as much fun as the text.

Pippa July 26, 2017 review from Goodreads

We chose this book as we usually really enjoy Francesca Simon's books but this one wasn't the hit that many of her books are. The Topsy Turvies tells the story of a family who do everything backwards. They get up at bedtime and go to bed in the morning, they eat in the bedroom and they wear their...

Amelia August 31, 2015 review from Goodreads

The topsy turvies are anything but your normal family, they wake up at midnight, they eat on the bed, the kids taught the parents and they even watched tv upside down. They go to watch Mrs. Plumb's house but suddenly a burger comes! Luckily they manage to scare him off before Mrs. Plumb comes bac...

This book is a very silly book. I thought that the pictures drove the point home about just how ridiculous the family is and that it is a fictional piece.

Rainey August 30, 2016 review from Goodreads

Simon's wacky family is odd to be sure, but I'm convinced young readers would love this.
